The Strokes Drop New Single ‘Brooklyn Bridge To Chorus’

The Strokes have shared a new peppy single, “Brooklyn Bridge to Chorus,” just ahead of the release of their upcoming sixth album, New Abnormal, on Friday.

Rick Rubin produced the song, which was recorded at Shangri-La studios in Malibu, California. Tina Ibañez created the retro art for the single, while Liquid Pink did the illustration.

The song sees the band’s lead singer Julian Casablancas meditating on memories, from old friends to the “Eighties bands” of his youth. It tells about how he longs to form new relationships and how he finds it tough to do that.

“I want new friends, but they don’t want me/They’re making plans while I watch TV,” he sings.

The upcoming album is the band’s first since the release of Comedown Machine in 2013.

The Strokes previously released “Bad Decisions,” which is currently at No. 19 on Billboard‘s Alternative Songs chart, and the best performance ever by a Strokes song on the list in about nine years.

The band has released a few other songs, “At the Door,” “Ode to the Mets” and “The Adults Are Talking,” from New Abnormal.

During a concert in New Hampshire at a rally for Bernie Sanders, the Strokes unveiled “Bad Decisions” and “At the Door” and also shared an animated video for the songs.
